It's Not About The Burqa

When was the last time you heard a Muslim woman speak for herself without a filter? In 2016, Mariam Khan read that David Cameron had linked the radicalisation of Muslim men to the traditional submissiveness of Muslim women. Mariam felt pretty sure she didnt know a single Muslim woman who would describe herself that way. Why was she hearing about Muslim women from people who were neither Muslim, nor female? Years later the state of the national discourse has deteriorated even further, and Muslim womens voices are still pushed to the fringes the figures leading the discussion are white and male. Taking one of the most politicised and misused words associated with Muslim women and Islamophobia, Its Not About the Burqa is poised to change all that. Here are voices you wont see represented in the national news headlines: 17 Muslim women speaking frankly about the hijab and wavering faith, about love and divorce, about feminism, queer identity, sex and the twin threats of a disapproving community and a racist country. Funny, warm, sometimes sad and often angry, each of these essays is a passionate declaration, and each essay is calling time on the oppression, the lazy stereotyping, the misogyny and the Islamophobia. What does it mean, exactly, to be a Muslim woman in the West today? According to the media, its all about the burqa. Heres what its really about.
